Have you Suffered a Closed Head Injury?
Any form of traumatic brain injury (TBI) can have major impact’s on someone’s life, this includes a closed head injury. These types of TBIs are when the brain and skull have not been penetrated because of the injury. Even though no penetration has occurred, the force of the accident causes the brain to be thrown against the skull.
Closed head injuries typically occur during a serious car accident when the head suddenly stops after moving at a high speed. These can also sometimes be the result of a direct blow to the head or even a slip and fall accident. The National Institutes of Health defines symptoms of this injury as some sort of disturbance in consciousness.
Children often experience more severe symptoms as the result of a closed head injury. If your child received a closed injury as the result of an motor vehicle accident or another trauma to the head contact Church Wyble today for a free consultation.

Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury can occur as part of a closed head injury and may cause the brain to swell. When the brain swells, the brain has no place to expand. This can cause an increased pressure within the skull. If the brain swells due to a closed head injury or traumatic brain injury and has no place to expand, this can cause brain tissues to compress, causing further brain injury. As the brain swells, it may expand through any available opening in the skull, including the eye sockets.
There are four specific types of closed head injuries: 1) Concussion; 2) Contusion; 3) Hematomas; and 4) Hemorrhage. Someone may appear to function well after suffering a closed head injury. However, if they are doing a task and you interrupt them, or give them more than one thing to do at the same time, they won’t be able to do the task. This is one sign that a closed head injury or traumatic brain injury has occurred.If you even suspect a closed head injury or traumatic brain injury, call your doctor immediately.
